Welcome! The slides are easy to run just follow the directions; not sure if I can post the link but Google search "evangelo slides" and it's the first link.
Download zip and extract, copy to USB drive, plug drive into TV, run as a slideshow on slow setting.
As for break-in settings I'm playing it extra safe cause I dropped almost $4k so I am using Movie mode and turned contrast, brightness, sharpness all to like 50 for the first 200 hours. Oh and "Cell light" to 12-14. The funny thing is it still looks better than the H7150 I had for a few days. Not gonna lie, I ran a few Blu-Rays and TV on OOB settings to see what it can do lol Can't wait till 200 hours are up.....
